linux32&nbsp; creates&nbsp; a&nbsp; 32bit&nbsp; environment for the specified program, usually a shell.
The environment is inherited by all child processes of that&nbsp; program,&nbsp; unless&nbsp; they
set&nbsp; a&nbsp; different&nbsp; personality.&nbsp; The 32bit environment currently means all uname(1) 
system calls (and thus also the outputs of the&nbsp; uname(1)&nbsp; program&nbsp; with&nbsp; -m&nbsp; or&nbsp; -a
options) will return a 32bit type instead of a 64bit type as the machine type.

linux64 can be used to temporarily switch back.
